PASCO COUNTY, FL (WFLA) — A Pasco County elementary school has resumed normal operations after the school was determined to be secure following a bomb threat.
Sunray Elementary School received a bomb threat via voicemail on Tuesday morning around 8:30 a.m. Administrators called 911, and sheriff’s deputies responded to conduct a search and investigate the threatening message.
As a precaution, buses on their way to school were diverted Gulf Trace Elementary School, and students who were already at school were taken to the nearby Publix parking lot, and then transported by school bus to Gulf Trace.
Students who rode bikes or walked to school were offered a ride to the parking lot until they could return to school safely.
The Pasco Sheriff’s Office conducted a sweep of the school and investigated the threat. Just after 10 a.m. on Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said that the school was determined to be secure and students could return.
